The transformation of Madison Square Garden’s (MSG) 985,000 square foot footprint features an expanded 7th Avenue entrance, new arena seating, luxury suites, dressing rooms and numerous retail and dining concessions. Designed by Brisbin Brook Beynon (BBB) Architects, project highlights include the two striking Chase Sky Bridges. High above the arena, each suspension bridge spans 233 feet long and 22 feet wide, providing event-goers with a bird’s eye view of the action.
 
An inherent challenge to the rehabilitation of an iconic venue such as MSG is the full schedule of sporting and entertainment events. Turner developed a multi-year construction plan that allowed for major installations to occur during three “dark summers” and enabled the team to work continuously through the active periods. In addition, Turner worked with numerous city agencies to develop a comprehensive site safety plan in order to mitigate the logistical challenges of MSG sitting atop Penn Station, one of the world’s busiest transit hubs. To ensure the seamless progress of the project, Turner’s team created e-manager, a cloud-based construction software that allows for efficient tracking of the change order process and monitoring of subcontractor work flow. The project, which broke ground on June 1st, 2010 was completed on schedule in October, 2014 without a single hitch in the Garden’s roster of events.
